The British Blind Sports Have A Go Day

Today, there was a have a go taster day ran by

British Blind Sport

Which was the first of its’ kind here in Northern Ireland. It was held in conjunction with Antrim and Newtownabbey counscel, Guide dogs and Angel Eyes NI.

The day started at

Around half 10 with regestration and a talk about the day, before we all got started in our different groups. We all wore coloured wrist bands so that we knew what group we were in.

It was Goalball first, followed by tandum cycling. The cycling was done indoors which was a bit strange. We then went outside for some football, followed by lunch.

After lunch, it was time for some tennis. We then did guide running, followed finally by pilates. I’d never done pilates before, so this was a new experience. A lot of it was like yoga though but you had to hold the poses for much longer than you would in yoga.

It was a brilliant day and it was good to see so many people attending. Thanks to all the volunteers, coaches and clubs and of course to British blind sport. I am looking forward to more days like this.
